Frieder Kempe is a German scientist who designed a special metallic fabric called Farabloc that shields the human body from immediate shifts in the Earth's electromagnetic field. Published studies ( PMID 10695845, PMID 17216399 and PMID 11882771 ) show Farabloc relieves pain. This is based upon the concepts found in the Faraday cage which protects sensitive MRI machines from these shifts.
Frieder Karl Kempe, a native of Erlangen, Bavaria grew up in a house of pain. His father, Rudolf Kempe, a successful businessman, suffered excruciating phantom pain. He had lost a leg in 1916 in the legendary World War I battle of Somme. His son Frieder, an engineering and science student, became intrigued by the Faraday Cage, the 19th century work of British scientist Michael Faraday.
He had noted that his father's pain often seemed to be weather related - "Whenever the pain came, my father would predict rain. I realized that his scar had no healthy skin covering, hence no protection from electromagnetic fields."
Frieder wondered if a "second skin" - the principle of a Faraday Cage - might shield sensitive tissue, calm damaged nerve ends and stimulate blood circulation.
